In the context of the Governance Review which the new Council will consider on December 5, FCA-FAC has written to request the terms of reference for the Transit Commission be changed to permit Councillors to review (and be held accountable for) major operational issues. Currently Council votes only on the OC Transpo budget, fare structure and labour negotiation mandate. The FCA letter is found at https://secureservercdn.net/104.238.69.231/g4t.993.myftpupload.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/12/181128LT.pdf

In February 2017, an ad-Hoc FCA group submitted comments on a future Planning Advisory Committee which was to be created following the adoption of Bill 37. View our original submission here.

Following up on this file in the fall of 2017, we were advised that the city had without consultation or a response to our original submission prepared it’s own version of what the Planning Advisory Committee was to look like. You can view the proposal which will be voted on at the city council meeting on December 13th here.

FCA and Greenspace Alliance member Erwin Dreesen submitted an op-Ed which was published in the Ottawa Citizen here.

On May 31, FCA-FAC submitted comments on the City’s second discussion paper on review of R4 Zoning. The review has been going on for the past eight months and it has become evident that addressing issues in R4 zones will have implications for all residential zones in the City.

No official announcement has yet been made, but it is clear that the R4 review will be absorbed into a broader examination of residential zoning.

Background material and the FCA-FAC submissions to the review are found at https://secureservercdn.net/104.238.69.231/g4t.993.myftpupload.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/R4zo1705.pdf
